PhD opportunities in Climate System Science

Deadline February 15th for international applicants.
Deadline April 15th for domestic applicants (Australian and New Zealand 
citizens, plus Australian permanent residents).

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science is Australia's premier 
university led initiative comprising 5 Universities, CSIRO, the Bureau of 
Meteorology and multiple internationally outstanding research organisations.

The Centre has a series of PhD scholarships available. Successful candidates 
can expect to collaborate with partners in the Centre of Excellence in 
Australia and overseas. Expressions of interest in any area of Centre-focus are 
encouraged. Details of possible supervisors, and their areas of expertise, are 
available at 
<www.climatescience.org.au/content/postgraduate-and-honours-projects>.

Although scholarships are available to study any aspects of physical climate 
sciences, targeted scholarships are also available in the following areas:

1. Terrestrial processes, and particularly on how crops can be parameterized in 
regional or global climate models. Based at the University of New South Wales.

2. The impacts of urbanisation on local climates and the parameterization of 
urban surfaces in regional climate models. Based at the University of New South 
Wales.

3. Understanding the duration asymmetries observed between El Nino and La Nina 
events and seasonal synchronisation of these events.  Based at the University 
of New South Wales.

4. Comparison of climate model simulations with Australian palaeoclimate data 
covering the last 1000 years. Based at the University of Melbourne. 
<http://climatehistory.com.au> and <http://joellegergis.com>

Successful applicants will have an outstanding undergraduate record, with a 
first class honours (or equivalent) or a Masters degree. It is most likely that 
they will be strong in quantitative sciences.
Applicants should send full academic transcripts, a short CV and an expression 
of interest to Dr Melissa Hart (<melissa.hart@unsw.edu.au>). 

Applicants that find topics or supervisors of interest at 
<www.climatescience.org.au> are welcome to contact Dr Hart for advice, or 
contact other researchers directly.
